Now for something completely different

Basquiat painting sold for $31 million. Mom paid $15,000 in 1983. Daughter upset, suing Dad for $100 million cause painting should have sold for a lot more and blames Dad.

If your not familiar with what a Basquiat painting looks like open the link. To me he has a “unique” style, that is hard to miss once you have seen one.

See now, next time your in an art gallery and see something like that, you can say from far off, that looks like a Basquiat.

"Looks like a Basquait?" Looks like stuff I've seen on the side of box cars going down the train track. But maybe that's because I'm just a bourgeois deplorable. Or is it a deplorable bourgeois?

Here’s what a $110 million dollar Basquiat looks like.

To me this one you would display at Halloween.

After reading that story, seems to me the woman has a legit claim.

That's a lot of money for a bored child's doodles.

How about "bull squat"?

Here is the hateful looking response.

According to the papers, she wrote: “it is my desire and intent that my husband, Hubert Neumann, be disinherited by me to the fullest extent permitted by law, because he has been physically abusive to me for decades and has threatened my life."
In some states, that aint much!

If he was such an terrible guy then why didn't she leave him, kill him or have him arrested DECADES earlier, when he was being abusive? These stories always drive me nuts... reverse the genders and it would be the daughter saying the father was just going senile or onset of dementia and poor mom is going to starve in a medicare bed nursing home, but since the woman claimed abuse 20-30 years earlier it's all legit. Having [unfortunately] seen several similar situations personally, I call this whole thing suspect, at best!

I hope the idiot gets off on the suit and ends up getting the bulk of the estate... after all it was his HE and his wife's community property. If she came from money, they should have signed a prenup. At least that would be a lesson the daughter could learn about handling your affairs.
The judge dismissed Hubert’s motion and the sale proceeded as planned."
Seems like her beef would be with the judge that determined she had no grounds. Oh yeah, you can't sue him! :lol:


OK, rant off... geez, that reads like I need a drink! :lol::

How so? Sotheby's estimated $30M and it sold for 90% of that. Why does the woman think it's worth more than three times Sotheby's estimate? And why didn't she insist on a higher minimum bid, say $90M, if she truly believed it was worth that much? Why open at 24 if you think it's worth 100? :headscratch
It was consigned to Sotheby’s and placed in its contemporary art evening auction on May 16 with an estimate of about $30 million. Bidding opened at $24 million and elicited minimal interest
I mean, she can sue anyone for anything. I could probably sue her claiming $100M for mental distress after seeing an image of the painting in question. :lol:
I'm too old for this...
